From the Editor…

I’m excited! As in ‘waiting for new car to arrive’ excited! After a year behind the wheel of a modern Porsche – a 2014 Cayman – I realised that it wasn’t really for me. Don’t get me wrong, the Cayman is a fabulous car, and I loved the looks, the handling, the performance and the PDK transmission. But it was too perfect, if you understand what I mean.

I CAN’T WAIT. THERE REALLY IS NOTHING LIKE A NEW PROJECT…

Of course, there will be those who say I should simply have held onto El Chucho, my 1966 ‘912/6’ hot rod, but I’d reached the point when I felt I needed a change. As is the way of the world, values of early cars have continued to rise, whereas I lost money on the Cayman, meaning that I had to have a serious think about what was to take up space in my tiny garage.
My first ever Porsche was a 1971 914/6 – a genuine ‘six’ at that – and I missed the fabulous handling, the unusual styling (‘What’s that, mister?’) and the sheer practicality of a car with two boots (trunks). The value of 914/6s has skyrocketed in recent years (I bought mine for £5000, sold it for £10,000 five years later) so a ‘four’ it had to be. So, my ‘new’ car (above, shown sitting at the shippers in South Carolina) is currently on the ocean, heading for the UK.
I can’t wait. There really is nothing like a new project…
